Random Thought of the Day

Why is cottage cheese called cottage cheese? It has nothing to do with cottages ... unless it has to do with what it would look like if you're at the cottage and you leave the sour cream out of the fridge. I figure that would be about the same consistency as cottage cheese.


  1. hmm. that's a good one. i'd like to know as well.

  2. "The term "cottage cheese" is believed to have originated because the simple cheese was usually made in cottages from any milk left over after making butter. The term was first used in 1848."

    Ahhhhh Wikipedia, what would we do without you?

  3. Indeed, Mo!

    That's kind of disgusting actually.
